prevent it. even a 9/11, we absorbed it and we are stronger." so is the president, perhaps, putting our troops in danger as some have suggested since that excerpt came out? joining us, two fox news contributors, senior correspondent in p.r., juan williams and conservative columnist andrea tantaras. good morning to both of you. juan, you don't have a problem with this. >> no, i think it's really an affirmation of america as a strong, resourceful country, resilient and i think what the president is saying, he'll do everything he can to prevent another terrorist attack but if the terrorists think that we are weak and that we can be easily scared off by one attack. it's not true. that's not america. >> but, you know, 9/11, we lost 3,000 people. to say we can absorb it, that seems insensitive. >> it might seem insensitive, but, you know, he's not your preacher. he's not your mom. he's your president and he has a vision and he's trying to communicate to the bad guys that, you know what? we can take a punch and we punch back. >> all right. i think andrea would like to punch you right now. she doesn't agree. >> can you absorb this heel, juan? >> absolutely not.
